Corn stover key ingredient for new DuPont cellulosic ethanol biorefinery

DuPont recently broke ground on a new 30-million-gallon cellulosic ethanol plant in Nevada, Iowa. The plant is expected to require 350,000 tons of corn stover annually when it begins operation in 2014.

He was a speaker at Iowa State University’s Integrated Crop Management Conference in Ames.
